“Great Food with big portion”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

My family and I went to this Picanteria in the Yanahuara district in Arequipa after reading the review in Lonely Planet. The place is filled with local people mostly family as we went there on Sunday. The food was really and came in big portions so please be careful when you order. The 4 of us ordered the Special Palomino for S55 which contains variety of food. We also Chupe de Camarones (Crawfish Chowder) which costed us S39 and was huge enough to feed the 4 of us. You can take a taxi from downtown Arequipa for around S6 to get to the restaurant. After the meal, you can walk around 5 minutes to the Mirador de Yanahuara for a nice view of El Misti Volcano at the plaza nearby.

“Good food but immense portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is very nice. It is huge and very busy but still charming. The roof deck is particularly pleasant. The food is very good, with significantly better cuts of meat than you find in most Picanterias. But, the portions are enormous. My husband and I each ordered an entree, and we took home more than we ate!! This is definitely a place to share meals, so bring your friends!

“Great fun. Delicious traditional food. Huge portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

Nothing more to say. The restaurant is HUGE but get there before 1 if you want to be seated. I had two appetizers and they were enormous. The waiters and hostesses all wear traditional Peruvian outfits. No one speaks English but that is ok. The most traditional dishes are the best. If you can make it through the appetizer, the pork dishes are even more copious.

“Good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Nice restaurant. Food was very good with generous portions, and the restaurant itself has a nice ambiance. (but nothing fancy.) Worth a short cab ride from the center of town.
